    It's called single user because it will only allow a single user to log in: root. The init levels are as follows:

    0: halt
    1: single-user
    2: sing-user with networking, usually
    3: multi-user (normal console level)
    4/5: multi-user (graphical level)
    6: reset

    So a Q&D way to restart is to say (as root): telinit 6.

    DansG installed via package, or ./configure && make && make install?

    There is a bug lurking in the nether regarding older versions of Dansguardian and newer versions of ClamAV.

    I resolved this by configuring and installing DansGuardian from source.

    Than moved toward a different solution: SourceForge.net: DansGuardian Anti-Virus plugin

    Could you post your ClamAV .conf settings and DG settings regarding ClamAV please?

    compiling the src is more trouble than its worth, mainly cos i have no dev utils, well i've installed what I can find out I should (devscripts build-essential fakeroot) but still get errors. cant afford to be massively sidetracked figuring out how to make compile work before i figure out how to make the application work.
